This Week Online: Oscar Podcast and iPad Commentary

This week online, Bill McGarvey of BustedHalo returns to America to discuss this year's Oscar contenders with myself and culture editor Father Jim Martin. Will "Avatar" triumph or can "The Hurt Locker" squeak out a surprise win? What do "Up" and "Up in the Air" have to say about detachment, and what exactly happened in the final scene of "A Serious Man"? Find out on this extended conversation in anticipation of the Oscar broadcast on March 7.
